Trident Juncture 18 (TRJE18) is a NATO-led military exercise that was held in Norway Oct-Nov 2018 with 51,000 participants from NATO and partner countries Sweden and Finland. The main goal of TRJE18 is to train the NATO Response Force and to test the alliance’s defense capability. UEC Electronics’ Exclusive European Distributor, ZeroAlpha Solutions, participated in the exercise demonstrating the Ground Renewable Expeditionary Energy Network System (GREENS).
The GREENS delivers 1kW of clean, stable, silent power without fuel in austere environments. The GREENS couples solar collection with energy storage to deliver power 24-hours per day without the need for any fuel like traditional generators. To demonstrate the criticality of GREENS, our system was demonstrated powering the Kongsberg Defence Corporation’s Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS). CROWS allows weapon operators to engage targets remotely, without leaving the protection of their armored vehicles / shelters
